Attitudes Towards Newcomers – Take the Survey June 25, 2021

Good afternoon,

Northern Policy Institute has launched the first of six annual surveys to track changes in attitudes towards newcomers, visible minorities, and Indigenous Peoples in Northern Ontario.

We need your help.

Communities, agencies, and organizations in all regions of Northern Ontario have committed to being more welcoming. To attacking racism and discrimination head on. To pursuing reconciliation through tangible action.

This survey will help us know what is, or is not working, and where.

The results of the survey will be released annually and, provided we get a strong response from people in every one of our communities, the results will be as localized and specific as they can be made.

The online survey will be in available for 4 weeks from June 22nd until July 16th, 2021. Anything you can do to encourage your community members to respond would be most appreciated.

Please Note: NPI has also partnered with Environics Research who will be doing randomized telephone surveying in the ‘Big Five’ Northern Ontario communities – who have all selected to take part in RNIP (North Bay, Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins, and Thunder Bay). Respondents who participated in that random telephone poll are asked NOT to respond to the online version.

Thank you,
